Almost there....*

Well, here's the penultimate square. The colors aren't quite right, and I flipped the two left squares wrong way round, but I refuse to take a fifth picture of this stupid thing.
The final square is currently being sewn together, and though it doesn't look entirely the way I would like it too, it is still pretty cool. I am going to try and bust my ass to get the thing finished before we leave for Germany next Monday, but I think that may be pushing it. I would love to take it with us as the "play time" blankie, although with the boy mobile now, it may be futile. He's everywhere!

Other than that, nothing to report, although I have been glued to the Weather Channel. North Carolina isn't even expected to get much rain from good ol' Katrina, but I am a fabulous weather hypochondriac. Sample freak out: "Are you sure this isn't tornado weather? 'Cause that looks like a funnel cloud to me. Just rain? Are you sure? Was that lightning hitting our house? It wasn't? Then what was it? Somebody closing their car door next door? I see. Maybe they're leaving town because there's been an evacuation order and we didn't hear because we were watching the weather channel and it isn't local! They would broadcast it on all stations? Oh, okay. Are you sure?"

* whenever I read these two words, they always sound like a quote from what movie? twenty points for a correct answer.

Sorry to be so late--I was rambling and roaming.

Love it, can't wait to see what you did for the weird square.

This makes me so happy. Hope the boy enjoys for a long, long time!

LOL at the Tornado fears. Moved to VA after 15 years on the west coast. Give me an earthquake, fire, mudslide- no big deal. Hurriacanes & Tornados? Crap! One I go into the basement and one the attic right? HuH? I actually had to ask my neighbor how I could know a tornado was coming other than a funnel cloud. Green sky and hail. Okay- just a few pointers were helpful. But she did look at me like I had horns. Beautiful blanket. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Eagerly awaiting the completed blanket. It is beautiful so far!

Oooh, what a pretty blanket! I really admire folks who make those blankets with so many squares to be sewn together. Wow!
